    It's called a sissy bar and I'd think it's aftermarket. Could be wrong tho' , that could be my new mantra!!

    Bloody hell, that looks expensive for what it is plus extra for the pad. Come on yer having a laugh W.O.T.
    I have a genuine Triumph rack fitted which is a nice simple design and looks great but the chrome plating around all the weld joints is very poor. I would imagine this will be the same ?
    Over the winter months after constantly spraying with FS365 I had to revert to thickish engine oil to combat the rusting.

    My Triumph rack is exactly like that, finish detail is extremely poor.

    This is what an OEM one looks like for the 865efi Bonnie.

    First thing I did after buying and riding it home was to remove it and fit a solo seat. Bugger the armchair styling.

    No self respecting Panzer Commander would be seen dead with that on his tank! o_O
